CTD #315- Grateful!!

Good Morning... it's Wednesday and time for the new Color Throwdown colors!! This week Jodi is bringing us these fantastic colors!!

Isn't that image wonderful.... love those white pumpkins, well I guess they aren't totally white!

I wanted to play with pumpkins, like the inspiration picture, so I pulled out my Verve set Bountiful Harvest. The pumpkins were stamped, lightly colored with two shades of yellow copics and red for the stars. I added some leaves with Verve's Sprightly Sprigs die, die cut a circle for the sentiment to nestle in and finished with a twine bow and stars in the corner.

Our Guest Designer this month...Tara Godfrey from Inking on the Edge - and as you know by now, this girl knows how to layer and embellish!!

And the featured Stamper this week is Bernadette Bliss... you can find her blog Sweet Paper Bliss here.

Happy to have you join us!!

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.

I used the week 2 Viva la Verve sketch  created by Stacey for my layout.... I struggled with this one and you can see it was a liberal interpretation ;)

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
